Shout-Out to My Better Half

Posted by savannahkase on October 2, 2014 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Working Mom |

Today is my husband’s birthday, which seems like a good excuse to openly express my appreciation for all that he is and does. At this phase in his life, my husband is struggling to define himself. Especially in a career-oriented place like Washington, D.C. – where every conversation begins: “What’s your name and what do […]

My Better Half

Posted by savannahkase on August 9, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Personal, Working Mom |

I am not just a working mom, I am a “breadwinner mom,” one of the 5.1 million (37%) married mothers who have a higher income than their husbands. Unlike most of my peers in this cohort, however, I do not just earn a higher income, I earn the sole income on which our family depends. […]
